The "George and Agatha Bacovia" memorial house, the building where the poet George Bacovia (1881-1957) lived, between 1933-1957, became the memorial house in 1966. From 1933, Bacovia settled in Bucharest with his wife. , Agatha Grigorescu Bacovia (1895-1981), and their only son, Gabriel, in a modest house on Frasinetului Street.
At the beginning of the 20th century, the area belonged to the Serban Voda Commune, being located in the suburbs of Bucharest. The house was built with a loan from his wife, obtained from the Teaching Staff House, and the construction lasted about a month, Agatha being the site manager. The house became a museum in 1958, one year after the poet's death, thanks to Agatha. The beginning of the project was difficult because the involvement of the state was quite brief, materializing only by changing the name of the street, which until then was called Frasinetului. Only in 1966 was the nationalization and the title of George Bacovia Memorial Museum obtained.
The house preserves an authentic atmosphere, which reminds us of the period when the Bacovia couple lived here. Visitors can admire a lot of personal objects of the family (pieces of furniture, documents, manuscripts, photographs), but also the garden full of flowers reminiscent of a historical period rich in currents, meanings and cultural interferences.
